July 8, 2020

Sullivan & Cromwell’s Litigation Group has been recognized as the Litigation Department of the Year in Finance by the New York Law Journal. In the last year, the litigation practice has netted crucial wins for financial institutions, including:

  • A victory for client UBS before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in the last major Enron case
  • Leading Wells Fargo to settlements with the DOJ and SEC over its sales practices
  • Obtaining affirmance of a trial decision for Barclays in a $1 billion hedge fund suit
S&C’s litigation practice was previously named the Litigation Department of the Year in Product Liability by New York Law Journal in 2018.
 
NYLJ also recognized litigation partners Sharon Nelles as a 2020 Distinguished Leader and Julia Malkina as a 2020 Rising Star.
